Dinamica® recycled PET microfibre

  • S-P-00351_image1.jpg

Product information

Dinamica® is an ecological microfibre for the automotive sector. Its production process is similar to that used for paper recycling, in which no harmful chemical substances are used. The recycled polyester contained in Dinamica® derives from polyester fibres (T-shirts, fabrics, fibres) and PET (bottles, plastic, etc..). Recycling polyester means reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 80% compared to the traditional petrol-based polyester production process. Under the microscope, Dinamica® is composed of three layers: face, inner scrim and backing.

Submerged in a water solution, the inner scrim attracts small polyester fibres, which are suspended in the liquid, to both surfaces; these are compacted using a water-based needle punching process. The microfibre is then immersed in a water polyurethane bath, which, in contrast to normal production cycles, does not contain the solvents that are harmful to health and the environment. This process compacts the fibres, making them elastic and resistant. During dyeing, the use of neutral, non-toxic coloring agents is a further guarantee of the product's naturalness and respect for health and the environment.

Miko guarantees eco-sustainability along the whole Dinamica® production cycle, ensuring a low level of polluting emissions and energy consumption during production. Finally, Dinamica® is designed for easy disposal, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life. In the upholstery sector, conformity to the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 for product class I is a further guarantee of great quality and safety, certifying the microfibre for applications which come into direct contact with the skin.

For the automotive sector, in addition to the Auto line that includes Dinamica® Auto, Auto Stretch and Wide, Miko has developed a new product called Dinamica® Nabuk Plus to meet different stylistic demands for new automotive customers. Depending on the specific applications inside the vehicle, Miko can offer a complete range of products that better fits the car manufacture's specifications from seat to headliner, bolster, IP, door panel, pillar, and steering wheel applications.
